After Making Election About Trump Ossoff Says Folks in D.C. ‘Overstate Their Influence’ on Local Races
RUHLE: "President Trump would call it not necessarily grassroots, he would say it’s gold-plated. He tweeted this last night. 'DEMs failed in Kansas and are now failing in Georgia. Great job, Karen Handel! It’s now Hollywood versus Georgia on June 20th.' That, of course, is in addition to the six tweets President Trump sent out in the three days leading up to yesterday’s election. So while President Trump says it’s Hollywood versus Georgia, is it the White House versus Hollywood with Georgia in the middle? Where do you stand in all this?"
OSSOFF: "Well, I think folks in Washington tend to overstate their influence in local races like this. This comes down to grassroots intensity. The thousands of volunteers and organizers, so much of it led by women who have been pounding the pavement and knocking on doors for months here in Georgia. And it’s that kind of grassroots momentum that will carry us to victory on June 20th."
